NZZ: Balancing articles…

NZZ Nr. 6, pg.5, January 2013 reports about skeptics in Israel about an appointment of Hagel. (“Skepsis in Israel gegenüber Hagel”).

 This good and balanced article is mentioning a position of Hagel on Israel – that Jewish identity of State of Israel should remain. (In einem Buch schrieb er, Israels jüdische Identität sei nicht verhandelbar und die Allianz der USA mit Israel sei zentral für die Nahostpolitik – jedoch dürfe diese nicht auf Kosten der Beziehungen zu arabisch-muslimischen Ländern gehen.)

Day before there was another article on elections in Israel NZZ Nr. 5, pg.3 called leading parties in Israel as Nationalisten in the article header. (“Gute Aussichten für Israels Nationalisten“)

Quote: Aussenministers Lieberman…. betont säkulare Nationalismus dieser von Russen dominierten Partei.

 In other articles, for example – NZZ Nr. 258, pg.14 Israeli self identification problem (’Israelische Identitätsprobleme’), we can find epithets like ‘faschistoiden Zug’ towards Israel right-wings.

Why not to use same words to describe all people supporting Jewish and democratic State of Israel?

Why NZZ article header from 5 January excludes epithets ‘Nationalists’, ‘Fascists like ideology’ or ’Russians’?

Are these terms reserved for Lieberman and Netanyahu only?
